The fourth release on BFW from Eko_Fisk sees a subtle change in direction - the lush and warm ambient textures are joined by sequencer driven Berlin school style electronics.

The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013.

These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to....

Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all...

MagicVan returns to BFW with another highly original and entertaining collection of recordings. How to describe this? Well, I have described MagicVan as BFW's Captain Beefheart - a description he has not taken offence too (yet!), so I'm sticking to it. All I suggest is that you download, listen and make up your own mind. There is much more to come from MagicVan over the next few months. Topics: bfw, magicvan, experimental
Eko_Fisk's sixth release on BFW is, in his own words, a kind of a space opera that came to me after watching some scifi movies... I developed a plot and soundtrack in my head.
